Bluebird Cafe Socks are a sweet and simple eyelet lace design. Perfect for a cuppa at the cafe. Inspired by the cafe where Miss Marple sits down for a coffee and gossip in the book, A Murder is Announced.

The pattern is easy to memorize and intuitive. I love the look of contrasting heels and toes. The pattern consists of a short row heel which is the easiest and quickest heel but of course, you can insert whatever heel you like. The socks are knit from the toe up, using Judy’s Magic Cast on for toe up socks. Here is a link to a how to video if you are not familiar , here

Its my preferred cast on but everybody has there favorite. The pattern is only written in one size, it is adjustable by changing needle sizes to suit.
